Easy to set
Start -> Configuration -> Windows Firewall -> Exeptions -> Add Port
Enter a name eg: "Allow DSM UDP", enter port 6500, select UDP, hit OK
Do the same for ports 6073 and 6515 and you'll be fine for hosting a server ;).
If there's still this error then you might be behind a router, modem or ISP that's blocking this signal. Allow the ports on the modem/router if possible or contact the ISP if they're blocking these ports.

Make sure your router is running the latest firmware. My router needed a Feb 7th version (Linksys 1.02) in order for me to host a game.
